Natalia Rodrigo highlights, in El Mundo and Expansión, ALLCOT’s commitment to bring sustainability closer to SMEs
Currently, more and more companies require additional support to design, implement and report their sustainability and climate change strategy. The article published by El Mundo and Expansión in their special Environment section talks about these new regulations on non-financial reporting. Also, these two renowned Spanish media were able to interview Natalia Rodrigo Vega, Chief Business Development Officer at ALLCOT. In the interview, Natalia points out a growing need for some small and medium-sized companies to direct their activity towards sustainability, despite the numerous complications they may encounter at the beginning.
Among these difficulties is the fact that, first, not all of these companies have the necessary knowledge regarding the design of programs to combat climate emergencies, nor the procedures to be carried out. In that sense, Natalia states that one of the main challenges ALLCOT faces when working with these small companies is precisely the fact of “correctly organizing the input data”, tasks that “although they may seem simple, are the most complex for SMEs”.
On the other hand, Natalia points out that some of these companies, “do not have the capacity to afford a sustainability team”, even when they must comply with the commitment to report information on their performance on environmental issues, among many others. In this scenario, ALLCOT acts as their ally in sustainability, in the long term, adapting to real needs and budgetary capabilities, designing a simple, yet challenging, credible, measurable and permanent roadmap with impact over time. In short, at ALLCOT “we seek to remain competitive in order to reap the rewards in the future,” Natalia emphasizes.
With more than 10 years of experience in sustainability and climate change, ALLCOT continues to direct its efforts towards decarbonization and energy transition, providing support and offering strategic solutions for all those who wish to commit to sustainability, reaffirming its commitment to the environment and its desire to combat climate change.
EL PAÍS, Spain’s renowned media, highlights ALLCOT Group’s work in its fight to mitigate carbon emissions.
In celebration of the World Environment Day, EL PAÍS has echoed, this Sunday, June 5, the work of ALLCOT Group for the financing and development of projects that contribute to accelerate the transition to a zero-emission economy.
The actions being carried out to combat climate change are still insufficient. It is precisely for this reason that, in line with the Paris Agreement, ALLCOT Group creates tools for the knowledge, interpretation and management of greenhouse gases (GHG) and, in addition, develops projects based on technology (wind farms, solar…) and nature (reforestation and mangrove conservation…). These projects aim to promote decarbonization and sustainable development, responding to the real needs of the affected populations.
These initiatives are financed through the acquisition of carbon credits, equivalent to one ton of carbon dioxide that is no longer emitted into the atmosphere. In this way, ALLCOT Group, a strategic ally of countries committed to the environment, carries out different programs of activities related to access to health, reforestation, sustainable development or quality education, which generate a positive impact on the local community in which they are developed.
Since its inception in 2009, ALLCOT Group remains committed to providing strategic and innovative solutions to lead environmental projects that are aligned with the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Between May 12 and 14, in the city of Riohacha (Colombia), ALLCOT Group participated, together with various Colombian entities, in the Mesa Más la Guajira, organized by the ANDI’s National Water and Biodiversity Center. This meeting allowed participants to exchange institutional, business and organizational plans. Among the attendees were companies of the stature of Enel, Ecopetrol and Grupo Energía Bogotá, among others.
Lucas Rivera, Group Climate Change Innovation Manager at ALLCOT, participated in the meeting highlighting the relevance of the development of “Blue Carbon” projects, as an alternative for carbon sequestration, and contribute to the fight against climate change in the Colombian coasts. “Blue Carbon“ is that which is naturally absorbed and retained by coastal and marine ecosystems, such as mangroves, seagrass meadows and marshes.
Thus, these three ecosystems are responsible for storing half of the “Blue Carbon” buried under the seabed and, in addition, contribute to the protection of coasts from erosion generated by sea level rise and storms. Therefore, developing “Blue Carbon” projects is to promote coastal climate resilience, in terms of mitigation through carbon sequestration and adaptation through natural disaster prevention.
ALLCOT’s involvement in this participation is a further step in its commitment towards the development of projects that focus on the promotion of a sustainable economy and the implementation of strategies to achieve carbon neutrality.

ALLCOT Group stands out in the renowned digital media El Español ENCLAVE ODS, as a great ally in the smart implementation of programs aimed at helping companies interested in offsetting their CO₂ footprint. Natalia Rodrigo, Business Chief Business Development Officer, represented ALLCOT and shared her knowledge and extensive experience in offset markets.
The rise of the offset market represents a great challenge for companies that have ventured into sustainable decisions. However, Natalia, in this medium, explains that there are ways to offset the carbon footprint. That is, from “reforestation, preservation of the Amazon in Colombia, reforestation of mangroves in Mexico, or creation of wind farms in Chile”.
The creation of projects aimed at decarbonization by means of compensation, through the conservation of polluted and degraded areas, play an important role in the mitigation of carbon emissions and conservation of life in all its forms.
ALLCOT has put all its efforts to protect our planet and help more companies become interested in measuring their carbon footprint and at the same time, implement action towards decarbonization. It is through innovative strategies that we will be able to achieve the objectives of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.

ALLCOT Group was exposed in Corresponsables, an iberoamerican media focused on topics related to social responsibility and sustainability. In this interview, published in March 2022, Natalia Rodrigo Vega, Chief Business Development Officer, gave relevance to the important and arduous work of ALLCOT in the fight against the climate crisis.
In this well-known media, Natalia shared the story of the company together with its values and principles, and above all, its distinguishing objectives. In a complete and precise way, she showed some business lines that are currently available, such as: consultancy, commercialization of carbon credits, and the development of projects from zero. Moreover, she highlighted the important project that is being carried out in Senegal for the conservation of the mangrove.
Furthermore, Natalia, who has vast professional experience in the sustainability field, has identified a shared problem in organizations of the European Communities: the lack of standardized sustainability reports. Clearly, the ability to point out at this problem is an opportunity for different organizations to commit to the protection of the environment.
ALLCOT continues the task of proposing innovative solutions and strategies to lead eco-friendly projects for the environment, and that can be aligned with the agenda by 2030 for the Sustainable Development.

The government of the Province of Jujuy, with the support of ALLCOT Group, evaluates joining the carbon markets
ALLCOT Group continues, regularly, its arduous effort in the fight against climate change. Last week, ALLCOT participated, represented by Paula Brufman (Institutional Director), in a meeting together with the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change, María Inés Zigarán, the Secretary of Environment and Sustainable Development, Estefanía Sánchez Cuartielles and the president of photovoltaic park Cauchari, Guillermo Hoerth. The meeting took place at the House of Jujuy in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The main aim of this event has been to analyze and evaluate the entry of the Province of Jujuy into the carbon credit markets, in pursuit of the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This initiative could implement strategic projects related to renewable energy, urban solid waste management and forest conservation to bring them into regulatory compliance and voluntary markets. There is no doubt that this could also be a great financial opportunity for the province.
Once again, ALLCOT keeps creating and proposing strategies together with numerous organizations to integrate carbon markets. With that in mind, it may be possible to be more closely aligned with the framework of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement to face the greenhouse gas emissions that affect us all.
The government of Jujuy has echoed this news. You can read more about this meeting through this link.
We are pleased to announce that, as a result of an audit conducted between December 6 and 10, ALLCOT Group has maintained ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certifications for the Swiss, Mediterranean and Colombian subsidiaries. This endorses the company’s solid processes in terms of Environmental and Quality management.
We celebrate this achievement and thank all the people who made it possible!
After the historic first Latin American and Caribbean Climate Summit held on October 6, 7 and 8 in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, ALLCOT will be present at COP26, which will take place in Glasgow.
From October 31 to November 12, the different parties will meet to try to accelerate action towards meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Among the main issues to be addressed during COP26 are: the need to ensure a Net Zero world by mid-century, through ambitious emission reduction targets (NDCs) that limit global warming to 1.5°C; adaptation for the protection of communities and natural habitats; the urgency of financial mobilization by developed countries to keep their pledge on climate change contributions; and the collaboration between society, governments and the private sector to deliver on climate goals faster.
ALLCOT will be represented at COP26 by Natalia Rodrigo Vega (Head of Business Department), Mercedes Garcia Madero (Head of Group Technical Department), Arturo Vallejo Abdala (Group Head of Policy) and Sergi Cuadrat (Group Chief Innovation Officer).

On August 20, ALLCOT Group succeeded in registering a Program of Activities (PoA) for waste in Latin America and took an extremely important step towards climate change mitigation.
This program of activities will make landfill, biogas collection and subsequent management projects feasible. In this way, it will be possible to reduce methane emissions, a greenhouse gas with a much greater global warming potential than carbon dioxide (CO2).
Thanks to the excellent relations with the institutions involved, as well as the capacity of the technical team to achieve such success, it will be possible to include several projects in the PoA, thus reducing costs and time.
The greater the number of projects, the greater the mitigation of climate change and the progress towards real sustainability.
Thanks to its operational and organizational stability, and its ability to promote the transfer and deployment of climate technologies, ALLCOT has joined the CTCN (Climate Technology Centre & Network). As a member of the CTCN, ALLCOT will be able to access a diverse global community of climate technology users, providers and funders, and will play a significant role in information exchange and capacity building, providing technical assistance in response to country requests.
The CTCN is the operational arm of the UNFCCC Technology Mechanism, hosted by the UN Environment Programme and the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
